Find and Replace Multiple Lines with ^c

Today at work I had to prepare a set of 50 cover sheets for separate binders. Each binder contained documents for a different witness. I had a list of the witness names, and I wanted to add in the caption of the case in front of each name in order to create a cover sheet for each witness’s binder.

The easiest way to do this, is to use the clipboard code ^c . With a list of names like this:

. . . and a captioncopied to the clipboard in another document:

Using the paragraph code - ^p - in front of each name - in the FIND box, and ^m (for manual page break) and then ^c in the REPLACE box:

. . . we can add in multiple lines of text in front of each name
